Benjamin Šeško is ready to play, he will chase a TOP 10 goal in Belfast: If he succeeds, he will become only the 11th player in Slovenia’s history
Benjamin Šeško is the driving force in Euro 2024 qualification Slovenia. He scored four goals and added two assists in six games played ( San Marino was rested). He also shone against Finland, staying on the pitch for 60 minutes in Stožice, despite having his head bashed in by his opponent in the first half. “I will go all the way in every match, in every event, when it comes to Slovenia! No matter what sacrifices will be needed to achieve it,” said Benjamin Šeško after the 3:0 victory, who twice hit the net.
Although the attacker RB Leipzig is only 20 years old, he has already scored 9 goals for the national team. This ranks him 11th on the all-time list of top scorers for the Slovenian national team. With two goals against Finland, he overtook Milan Osterc, Miho Zajc and Zlatko Dedić. He is clearly just one goal away from reaching the elite Top 10, which he will no doubt try to do in Belfast, where tonight’s game kicks off at 20.45.
If he does, Benjamin Šeško will catch teammate Andraz Šporar and national team coach Boštjan Cesar. He will also become only the 11th player in Slovenia’s history to score double-digit goals. So far, apart from Šporar and Cesar, only Tim Matavž (11), Milenko Aćimović (13), Ermin Šiljak (15), Josip Iličić (16), Primož Gliha (16), Sasha Udovic (16), Milivoj Novakovic (32) and Zlatko Zahovic (36).
